Creative Lives — Freelance film editor Rachael Spann
A member of Work Editorial’s esteemed roster of editors, London-based Rachael Spann has worked her way up from a runner to being a go-to collaborator for some of the capital’s top directors. Recent projects include a Carphone Warehouse spot featuring Leigh Francis (aka Keith Lemon), a moody music video for indie band Daughter and a humorous ad for Cadbury’s ‘Have a fling with a Creme Egg’ campaign featuring a moustached lothario practicing his chat up lines. Last year also saw her work on her first TV show, Drunk History, a hilarious series where celebrities act out people’s inebriated recollections of historical events. Persistence and a sense of rhythm is key to her job, as is dedication – because of the on-demand nature of her work, Rachael hasn’t pre-planned a holiday in over a decade.
